Subject:Re: expired mysql connection ?
View as plain text  
There really isn't enough data here for a clear diagnosis.  In my
experience, having the server 'go away' in the middle of a process is
often caused by a bug in MySQL, more often than not triggered my some
preposterous thing my client code was trying to do.

Question:  are you explicitly closing the connections that you open?
Are you releasing your statements and result sets when you are done?
You may be overloading the server's use of available resources running
a long program which might be pushing MySQL into an unstable state.

Tell me, did your MySQL server come restart after the shutdown event
or did it stay stopped?

If it did restart, was your perl program able to recognize that and
start using it again or did your application stop on first detecting
that error?
